I believe in the laws of attraction and keeping thoughts positive. I was first introduced to this through the Secret.
One day a friend I hadn’t seen in 10 years said to me, “Everything you wanted you got”. I then realized it was true and I hadn’t ever realized it.
Now I try to practice training my thoughts. When something negative from the past comes to mind I just say, “God don’t let me think about that. I have forgiven and it is your place to judge the person. It is not my place,” and replace it with a happy thought.
My question is, is consciously creating one’s reality in any way against my belief in God? How do they work together? Could you clarify this?
Dear Loving,Consciously creating one’s reality is in no way against a belief in God. In fact, just the opposite. Who do you think set this whole universe up? And yes, He (and She) created us in their images… as creators.
Does God (and Goddess) enter into our manifesting? Yes, absolutely. How?
What we are here to do is to remember the divinity within us. We are a piece of God. We play this “earth game” to have the fun of remembering that. When we become successful at it, we experience “heaven on earth” — precisely what we planned to do (when we planned out this lifetime with God, Goddess, our Soul, higher self, etc).
When we take our power back, own our divinity and our God-given talents, strengths and gifts (yes, everyone has these… no exceptions), we can then co-create God’s dream for us and this planet.
But we can’t co-create until we own who we are. So those people who say, “I just want to do God’s will,” are missing the point. It is God’s will for us to fully actualize ourselves, and then and only then are we powerful enough to co-create with God.
Imagine you had a business, and you decided it would be fun to have a partner. Would you ask a newborn baby to become your partner? A kindergartener? Even a kid fresh out of college with no experience? Heck no. What would they bring to the table? Nothing.
It’s the same with a partnership with God. While we are spiritual infants, powerless and needy, any type of co-creation is a lie. But when we have proven our creation skills by manifesting a beautiful life, with joy, success and love, then we have some impact to add to the co-creation, and then and only then are we ready to co-create with God.
And paradoxically, we realize that finding our own success, our own joy, our own love of ourselves and others, is God’s plan for us. And becoming successful and happy benefits all those around us. The most loving and giving thing we can possibly do, is add the highest resonance possible to this energetic mix of consciousness on this planet. Remember everything we do are are affects everything in the entire multi-verse.
But, He has other ideas as well, not to be revealed until we have received the gift He (and She) have bestowed upon us… the gift of life with the ability to manifest our personal heaven.
I hope this helps Loving!
With much love and joy,
P.S. Just because we aren’t ready to co-create with God until we are powerful, does not mean we cannot receive His/Her guidance, help, love and support every step along the way. The deal we made coming here is that They won’t interfere unless we ask. So ask, please, just ask.
